But, I was thrilled by the ultimatum given to the company by the hackers, because offering escapades to a married person having marriage trouble is like offering booze to an alcoholic. Some smart men got scared; good! This article is not to proselytize, but to save marriages.
Use your discovery as a wake-up call, and call to action; not a reason to end your marriage. Cheating of any kind, to any degree, is immoral, but It does not have to spell the end of your marriage; not by any means. This should help you with both.
The shock and disappointment you feel now or the numbness will take some time to get over, but it always passes. I promise; you will get past this. But I do not want you to think it will pass, and everything will automatically be okay. If you do not change the underlying dynamics of your marriage, which you can accomplish without his involvement, this, and other problems, will keep cropping up again, and again.
The ONLY thing that will work long term is to change the underlying dynamics of your marriage My ONLY desire is to help you get your marriage back, and we are very good at that. We have helped countless women do so; ones who were told it was impossible by others.
It is not easy to hear that your husband would not have strayed if your marriage was better. But if you pretend things at home were fine until he strayed you are fooling yourself. Things were NOT fine! If they were, and he thought so too, he would cherish you and never do anything to hurt you. His straying is a wake up call, or a death knell; that is up to you. Do nothing positive and proactive and your marriage will keep getting worse; guaranteed.
But if you take positive action you will not only save your marriage, but you will be able to have a great marriage; I promise you that, too. It is up to you. It is too slow, and costly. We want to help you fast, then get out of your life. You can read one of my books. These are usually not enough for marriages in serious trouble. Usually, depending on how far he strayed, you will need more than one of my books.
Everything is common sense and practical. You can implement what you learn very easily. But either one is very useful. Usually all the power to heal things is in the hands of the wife.
Half our sales are to couples, and both take their course. So, either way is okay. Marriage is the deepest and most holy relationship you will probably ever have. It is between two souls. It means the pure soul of each of you is supposed to utilize your mind, your body, and your self control for the purpose of expressing love, in ways not possible in any other relationship; marriage is the perfect hive for that. Those couples who live in such a sweet loving marriage never consider cheating.
Not because it is immoral, but because their hearts minds and souls are so full of love that the thought never enters into their mind. The other reasons, which follow, are trite in comparison. True, some men never should have gotten married.
Those few are cursed with true mental disorders, or are evil a hard bar to reach. But in the vast majority of cases this kind of thing is very healable. When handled right, the men come back to their senses. This article is not for you if where you want to start, and end, is with condemnation of your husband. That would mean you already decided your marriage is over. We want your marriage to be resuscitated and set back on track; to be better than ever. That approach is neither realistic or permanent.
You will learn to understand him, his weaknesses, and how he succumbed. Otherwise you will never be able to forgive what he did. Understanding is essential in marriage, anyway. So it is a power you will also use to build your marriage. What you should do now, and in the future This is the main purpose of the article. The emotional impact, although destabilizing, has to be set aside, best you can, using both techniques, and the great alchemist; time.
You will get started on that pathway. You have to get back on track Why should you save your marriage? Just for the kids? It takes a real commitment to put the time and effort into healing, so whatever incentive works for you; go with it.
If you already did something, you cannot undo it. Do not confront your husband Confrontation causes people to dig their hole even deeper. We want to bring you two closer to having a good marriage, not further apart. If you ignore this warning, or already confronted him, there are possibilities you can expect. He will lie — lying is the most common reaction.
It is a primal defense; to run away from danger. And, because he has already been lying it is what straying is, in a way it is pretty easy to just go deeper into the lies.
He will make impossible-to-keep promises — i. I made a mistake, it will never happen again most common , lets work on our marriage…etc. Unless the dynamics of your marriage change, what you have now, is what you will always have. He will blame; you, your parents, the girl at the office, or… you get the picture. Nobody behaves well when confronted. Pointing these out to him will backfire! Do not tell anyone what he did This is a cardinal rule for marriage, anyway.
Marriage is a closed-off-to-the-world deal. Only the two of you are ever supposed to know what is going on within your marriage, and that practical rule is especially true for your problems. Hide any and all marital problems from your kids You are supposed to provide an ultra safe environment, as in cocoon safe, for your children. Your marriage is not meant to be shared with your children, but provide the love, examples training and security they need.
You should NEVER criticize or condemn your husband, anyway; but especially in front of your children. I used to be among the very few who advised against confrontation, condemnation, and venting. Thank God more people are getting wiser! But, the anger will subside. You will be able to forgive him, and your life will not end. The above keeps you from making things even worse. You may write in to us if you would like to understand better, or if you have any other questions about your marriage.
Our specially trained counselors can explain whatever you need. It is what we are here for. But they succumb to temptations. It is a bad choice. You also have a choice; right now. You have two general perspectives to choose from Judge your husband. Which will move your marriage to its end. Which will begin the shift towards a good marriage. It means they ARE judging, and choose to not allow any understanding driven compassion and forgiveness into their heart.
None of that works. If you ever want a fulfilling marriage, with love as its core, you will need to make some big shifts in your thinking and changes in your behaviors. It is worth it! It is not ignoring or accepting the grotesqueness of the offence, which never has to be done, as much as it is about opening your heart. You may want to react. You may get defensive and angry.
Try your best not to do that. That is not suggested or implied. Yet, no one should be too surprised by certain reactions individuals have to their environment. And our counselors, who I personally train and hire to answer questions, are not allowed to tell anyone what to do, either.
